AUGUST/SEPTEMBER WERE COOKING MONTHS: A REVIEW:
August/September turned into a foray in uncharted territory. Because of the complexity of our relationship with food in the 21st Century, when Arunachala Yoga & Ayurveda (that’s me:) decided to start teaching Cooking Workshops, we wanted to take the stance that cooking is sacred and eating is an intimate act.

Dedication

Thus we ended up calling our Workshops: The Sacred Art Of Eating: Secrets of Ayurvedic Cooking.We includes a host of Annapurna Goddesses. To begin this journey I found the perfect Goddess in Nomi Gallo. She is an amazing cook and Ayurvedic Practitioner. We tested it all out in the kitchen of a friend in Salt Lake City.

By the time August rolled around and here I was back in So CA again, another wonderful chef, Ayurvedic Practitoner and dear friend, Jutta Hecht became the perfect addition as lecturer and cook extraordinaire!

We had an amazing showing in Cardiff, CA.

By this time I had run into an actual Ayurvedic Vegan Chef, Darshana Thacker and the pact was sealed!

Arunachala Yoga & Ayurveda and Vapikaspirit were joining together to create some wonderful culinary magic. We had three Workshops in a row! Hollywood Hills, Vista, NO SD & San Juan Capistrano. We were assisted in our journeys with the amazing Megan McCarver (Chai & Kichadi Mistress!), Jacquelin Sonderling (Rocking Vegan Ayurvedic Cookies!)) and Jecenia Hidalgo (The Flowers!).

Each Workshop was a warm event with just the right amount of sacredness and intimacy needed to create joyful meals and joyous friendships.
